I had an old project 2 years before of a western spaghetti layout that I postponed.

Finally, I come back with a similar layout, Lucky Luke On30 layout,
based on the LUCKY LUKE strip cartoon.

The overall dimension is 2m long by 45cm wide for the boxed layout,
plus an oval to create a continuous loop.


This is the mock-up.

I will do a mix between a true traditional layout and the strip cartoon.
It's not so easy because the code and the rules are different.





I have to create the background for each building.

The buildings come from Atlas collection,
and I have more than 50 figurines from the strip cartoon.
They are more or less at the scale of 1/48.

We'll get all the clichés of the cartoon strip.

Interesting!

Where did you get the structure fronts?

For those Americans who have never heard of this comic book series:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Luke

There are lots of comic series like that in Europe,
sadly very few of them ever got translated to English and released in the US...

A company called Atlas sold in 2008 the structures front and figurines.

 I modify a little bit my mock up.  

For the hill, it's just in order to have an idea. 

The first tunnel is for the mine, and in reality the track for the mine will be 1 inch lower. 

I will check the mock up during this week, and if I'm satisfied, the next week I will lay the tracks.

Don't hesitate to share your feeling about the layout.

I think you’re doing a good job of capturing that comic book look.  

Very cool.  

The cactus and storefronts definitely do it right.  

I also like the look of the backdrop with curved corners and hazy effect.  

I’ll be watching to see where you take this.  

Looks like fun.

I add the figures to capture the mood. 

I have all the figures of the cartoon strip, with all the western cliche.

They are shinny, but I will coat them with a matt varnish.

I'm not familiar with the Lucky Luke comic strip. 

Do you have any images from that so we could see what you’re working towards?
